I remember it being 99c in about 2000 just after the Sydney Olympics. They were pulling the all the massive statues from the top Centre Point Tower it was quite amazing.

It was round the year 2001-ish, I w
as driving a 1995 Mazda MX5 and loving single life. I’m now married, with a baby. How things have changed, for the good of coarse.
Tough question…. I had a work car so i never really paid too much attention, it was a 1999 Ford Laser and I think it was around 2002 when it was last under a dollar.

I’m a bit of an Moto GP fan, as are most Spanish people but coincidentally I remember Danny Pedrosa being the Champion last time fuel was this cheap, it was 2003 and I think it was his first championship too.
Funny enough, mine was actually in 2008 just after the GFC. I was driving home from Melbourne after a weekend at the cricket. It was David Warner’s debut for Australia at the MCG. I spent heaps that weekend, so filling my car up for $40 was awesome.
